live tonight from gaza city as we have for the last two nights. a night in which there has been a lot of talk about a potential cease-fire or cooling-off period but if anything, what we have witnessed in the last several hours here in gaza city is a heating up. we saw some rockets being fired from gaza city and a series of very loud explosions throughout the city in a number of locations around the office building that we are broadcasting from tonight. i want to show you what occurred about an hour or so ago, about five blocks away from basically very close to a media center where we were earlier. this is what we saw. we were not recording sound so you're not going to hear sound, until the end of this. but a very loud blast, as you see right there, basically all of us ducked down in the office. we thought that was the end of it. neal, our cameraman, panned over and then a series of more explosions. turns out this was a number of government buildings that is what is said to have been hit. it's not clear if those are secondary explosions or if those are multiple rockets going into the b
point here of what we saw in the last 24 hours here in gaza city and israel. take a look. day seven. talk of a cease-fire or time-out never materializes and the fire rages on. rockets continued to be fired from gaza, and massive explosions rock gaza city. >> i think it's pretty clear we're moving in the direction of -- i can hear shattering glass out there right now. the building just shook. of course, i was looking at the camera, so i didn't see where the blast took place. anybody see it? to the north of the building here. despite talk of cease-fire, it appears that the guns are still firing. >> cnn's ben wedeman during a live report. we rushed to the scene of the blast moments later. i'm told this house, this villa, belongs to a very wealthy man who is a member of fatah, who is not here. a wealthy banker and some local people here believe maybe somebody else was living in the house or maybe hamas had taken over the house and that's why it was a target. a number of ambulances have arrived on the scene. it is just not clear if there was anybody inside the house at the time. earlier
of the united states, 5:00 a.m. in gaza city. and a day of dramatic developments on both sides of the border in gaza and the gaza strip and throughout israel. a lot of talk about cooling down, about a potential cease-fire. we have seen things heat up. it is very hot, indeed. a short time ago, several hours ago, many explosions just in the area behind me. i'll show you the videotape. no audio, so i'll talk over it. we didn't realize what was about to occur and we weren't recording sound during it. but a very loud blast as you see right there, basically all of us ducked down in the office. we thought that was the end of it. and our cameraman panned over. and a series of more explosions. it turns out this was a number of government buildings that is what is said to have been hit. it's not clear if those are secondary explosions or if those are multiple rockets going into the building. then started pointing out, it was not over. at that point you can hear the sound. let's listen in now. whoa. that's just the sound in the tail end of it. we didn't think we were on the air during all this time, wh
if there were any, or any injured. >>> dramatic developments on the ground today. bloodshed in gaza city and israel as well. we'll have reports on both sides of the border, and i want to warn you, what you are about to see is very disturbing what we witnessed with frur own eyes from our vantage point. what we saw the last 24 hours here in gaza city and israel. take a look. day seven. talk of a cease-fire or time-out never materializes and the fire rages on. rockets continued to be fired from gaza, and massive explosions rock gaza stechl. >> i think it's pretty clear we're moving in the direction of -- i can hear shattering glass out there right now the building just shook. of course, i was looking at the camera, so i didn't see where the blast took place. anybody see it? to the north of the building here. despite talk of cease-fire, it appears that the guns are still firing. >> cnn's ben wedeman during a live report. we rushed to the scene of the blast moments later. i'm told this house, this villa, belongs to a very wealthy man who is a member of fatah, who is not here. a wealthy banker
, this was the reaction in gaza city. people took to the streets, massive traffic and crowds as people celebrated. gazans celebrated what they saw as a victory for hamas and gaza. question is, will all of this hold? will all of these people once again take cover in their homes? will the celebrations end and the fear return? for u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton and mohammed morsi who pushed for a cease fire, the agreement calls for discussion of a number of issues, including freedom of movement for palestinians in and out of gaza. and the agreement not to target the area in gaza, and to halt rocket fire into israel. again, a discussion, nothing is a done deal. over the next hour we'll look at the negotiations still happening now. we'll also hear from the spokeswoman for the israeli defense forces and from the leader of hamas. plus our reporters on the ground and a whole lot more. we begin with a look at what has transpired over just the last 24 hours. it is remarkable there was a cease-fire this hour, when you consider how this wednesday started off. take a look. add midday, no sign of a truce yet
gaza city from the central area in gaza city toward israel. a number of those rockets have been intercepted. it's not clear how many may have gotten through this evening alone. there's a lot to tell you about today. most significantly a big strike on a building just several blocks from here that houses a number of media organizations, local media and also some foreign media organizations. it's a building that was struck on sunday and had largely been evacuated. but today the building was struck. again, the lower floors were struck again. one member of islamic jihad was said to be killed. that's confirmed by israeli and palestinian sources. a lot to tell you about. here's what the day looked like. >> reporter: day six of the battle between hamas and israeli defense forces. day six rockets crisscrossing the border. despite efforts to broker a cease-fire, the spector of the israeli ground invasion is still very real. this strike occurred around 2:00 a.m. when we were live. also two media centers -- whoa! that was a rather large explosion. that occurred -- let me just look out here
wedeman actually in gaza city. ben, we're continuing to look at this media building in gaza. we're trying to get ben. wolf, bear with me. as we take a look at these live pictures of this smoking building that's been hit twice in the last two days, this houses the gazan press. it's a 24-hour news channel, i guess kind of like cnn. ben wedeman is here. ben, tell us about this particular broadcast center and why israel so badly wants to take it out. >> reporter: this is an office building. it contains in addition to lawyers' offices and others, a television station associated with the hamas movement. what's unclear, however, is what exactly their intention was. the first floor, there's a lawyers office. there's no sign for the television. my understanding, that's a few floors above where this building was hit. this building was hit in the upper floors, its top floor yesterday. very early yesterday. so it's not altogether clear what the target is. i saw the ambulance services brought out one person who was severely burned. we have subsequently learned that he is dead. they are still looking i
of the agreement, this was the reaction in gaza city. >> people took to the streets. massive traffic and crowds. they celebrated what they saw as a victory for hamas and for gaza. the question is will all of this hold or will this cheering end in rockets crisscrossing the boardern once again? will people take cover in their homes, will the celebrations ends and the fear return? for u.s. secretary of state hilary clinton and president morsi, the hope is that the deal will stick. it calls for freedom of movement for palestinians in and out of gaza and a commitment not to target militants and commitment from militant groups in gaza, to halt rocket fire into israel. again, a discussion nothing is a done deal. over the next hour, we'll look at negotiations still happening now, we'll also hear from the spokeswoman for the israeli defense forces and the leader much hamas. plus, a reporter on the ground and whole lot more. we begin with a look at what has transpired over the last 24 hours, and it's remarkable there is a cease-fire at this hour when you consider how this wednesday started off. take a lo
of hell on yourselves. 40 minutes after the bus bombing, our cameras captured this explosion in gaza city. all the while there was a flurry of diplomating activity. secretary clinton met with palestinian authority mahmoud abbas in the west bank and benjamin net ya knetanahu in ca. let's go straight to fred pleitgen where sirens have been going off earlier. and joining us is ben wedeman in the gaza strip, gaza city. fred, what are you seeing now in ashkelon? >> reporter: >> from ted pleitgen, have the rockets stopped in ashkelon? >> reporter: the rockets, yes, have stopped in ashkelon. it was interesting, because up until about a minute before our broadcast began, there were still booms that were heard in the sky. and about ten minutes ago we had to run for cover in ashkelon. now it appears as though things are quiet. i can tell you from speaking to people here on the ground, they're telling us this he don't really believe in this cease-fire just yet at this point in time. folks that we're speaking to at this cafe who have been watching the speech of prime minister benjamin netanyahu say t
the past couple of hours, israeli forces hit a media complex in gaza city for the second time in two days. over six days of the conflict, all too reminiscent of the ground war in 2008. at least 97 palestinians and 3 israelis have been killed. neither side knows when, where, or how the other will strike, and that leads to heart-stopping moments like this one live on cnn last hour with our frederik pleitgen. >> reporter: this town is actually a very interesting one because it is directly in the line of fire, especially from the very short-range rockets and only yesterday what happened was that there -- carol, we have an alarm going off right now. i'm going to have to seek cover. we're going to go over here. let's take the came ra off the tripod. >> you go. you go, you go go go. this always makes me so nervous. >> reporter: you have to get down on the ground and wait for it to pass. just hope it doesn't hit anywhere here. they're telling us to go inside the shop. we'll stay here. all right. seems like something impacted in the distance. not sure how far away. okay. the alarm stopped. it was
ceasefire talks the violence in gaza rages on at this hour. night, as gaza city is hit. the conflict with is ts sixth day. a huge blast lights up the night as gaza city is hit. the conflict with israel is now in its sixth day. so far 81 palestinians have been killed, nearly half, 37 of them, were civilians. 720 palestinians have been wounded. three israeli civilians have been killed and dozens more wounded. cbs correspondent charlie daggett reports from gaza city where an israeli airstrike hit a residential area killing at least 11 people. >> reporter: rescue teams struggled in a frantic effort to free a woman trapped in the rubble of a building leveled by an israeli airstrike today in gaza city. palestinian officials said seven members of one family died in this attack alone including four children. the israeli military says its strikes are surgical and they're finding their targets, but in one of the most densely populated places on the planet civilian deaths are mounting. >> this is savagery. >> reporter: journalists in gaza have found themselves in the crosshairs of israeli mis
, that the attacks, operation pass lead, began. we go to gaza city where we're joined by palestinian journalist mohammed omer. can you describe what is happening now on the ground? >> the only thing you can hear is the bombing and f-16's and missiles dropping across the gaza strip, everywhere in the gaza strip. we just heard a number of missiles fired and the drones. drones.indf-16's and in the east part of the gaza strip, where talking about, in particular, or the bombing has taken place from the israeli warships. the situation is very critical at the moment. as i'm sitting right now with a number of people who are evaluating, a number of injured people are being evacuated. they cannot find where to go to evacuate the dead bodies. there are a lot of people injured. so far we have the number, according to a medical crew next to me, seeing people killed in the last 24 hours -- we have 15 people killed in the last 24 hours, with over 150 people injured. in the last few hours or in the last couple of hours, the emergency team here and ambulances announced they found the bodies of four people, incl
, thanks very much. it's 10:00 on the east coast of the united states. it's 5:00 a.m. here in gaza city. the breaking news tonight, the explosions continue to rock this city. we also saw a short time ago a number of rockets being fired from gaza city toward israel. those seem to have been intercepted. it's not clear how many may have gotten through. a building several blocks from here that houses a number of media organizations, local media and foreign media organizations, a building that was struck on sunday and had largely been evacuated. today the building was struck again, the lower floors of the building were struck again. one member of islamic jihad was said to be killed. that's been confirmed by those on the ground. a lot to tell you about, here's what the day looked like. [ sirens ] >> day six of rockets criss-crossing the border. a spector of israeli ground invasion is still very real. this strike occurred monday when we were live at 2:00 a.m. also, two media centers. that was a rather large explosion. that occurred, just look out here, i can't actually see where the impact of
the last day. gaza's rocket strikes which hit israel's two largest cities, jerusalem and tel aviv, have brought a swift and powerful response. israel is focused on taking out hamas' iranian supplied rockets which can travel up to 45 miles, the farthest ever. hamas has been firing rockets for years as a way to end israel's blockade of supplies into gaza. terms of a potential cease-fire are being brokered by egypt, turkey and qatari officials. israeli defense forces targeted a media building in gaza, aiming at four senior hamas operatives they believed were inside. and two people died. it is not clear if they were the ones designated as the hamas targets. hamas, which grew out of the muslim brotherhood, seized in our gaza in 2007. since then, the group has become increasingly militarized. the death toll stands at 100 in gaza including women and children. and three in israel. any others have been wounded on both sides. israel credits its anti-missional defense system known as the iron dome funded by the united states for its low number of deaths. cnn's frederick platkin was live when the s
, everyone. we're coming to you tonight live from gaza city, where today, we have seen continued violence in what was day six of this conflict. we begin tonight with breaking news at this hour. new explosions rocking the city of gaza. just moments ago off in the distance, what sounded like rolling thunder, the sound of explosions somewhere in gaza, not in the actual area that we can see so it must be on the other side of the building where we are right now. earlier also in the past hour, we saw a number of rockets being fired from gaza city toward israel and we saw israel's iron dome air defense system actually take out some of those rockets in midair. so it doesn't seem like they actually reached across the border into israel and actually land in israel. we've seen explosions really over the last several hours, though not as active as we saw last night, but it was a very busy day here in gaza, a day -- deadly day as well. take a look. [ sirens ] >> day six of the battle between hamas and israeli defense forces. day six of rockets crisscrossing the border, despite efforts to broker a ceas
. >>> and good evening. a huge blast lights up the night as gaza city is hit. the conflict is in the 6th day. despite cease-fire talks the violence rages on. 81 palestinians have been killed. 720 palestinians have been wounded, three israeli civilians killed and dozens more wounded. we report from gaza city where a air strike hit a residential area. >> reporter: a woman was rescued from a collapsed building after an air attack. officials say seven members of one family died in this attack alone, including four children. israeli military says the strikes are surgical and finding their target. but in one of the most densely populated places on the planet, civilian deaths are mounting. >> this is inhumanity. >> reporter: journalists found themselves in the crosshairs of missiles, too. the military released it this video of a missile strike on a media center in gaza city. the officials called it legitimate target. >> this media building had an infrastructure of hamas electrics communication on the roof. >> reporter: another building that houses officers used by foreign journalists, including
the need for medical supplies. i was speaking to a number of doctors in gaza city and are in bad need for 192 types of medicines that are not available in the stocks of the ministry of health or the hospitals. there is the need for 450 items of medical supplies, or what they called disposable medical items. if these needs are not met by the next day or two, there will be a big humanitarian crisis in the gaza strip. the situation is deteriorating. the targets are the civilians. the last one was a 10-month-old baby child who was killed by any israeli missile. the missiles are falling as i speak to you. breaking news coming out from the medical crew next to me, the f-16's are targeting the beach camp in the east of gaza city at the moment. are targeting-16's the beach camp in the west of gaza city at the moment. that is breaking news that is happening as we speak. >> mohammed omer, the reports are the leaders of the hamas government's are in hiding, fearing possible attempts to assassinate them as well. is the general population or the superior force is preparing for a possible israeli i
. cnn's anderson cooper witnessed it firsthand. he's been reporting live from gaza city. and earlier, i was on the air with anderson when a massive explosion took place nearby. watch what happened. >> in that blast, we know ten members of one family, also two media centers built -- [ blast ]. whoa! that was a rather large explosion. that occurred -- just look out here. i can't actually see where the impact of that was. it is actually set off a number of car alarms. but that was probably the largest explosion that we've heard just in the past -- really in the past hour. there have been a number of explosions in the past hour or two. but that one -- that one was pretty loud. we actually -- the rockets continue to be fired from gaza toward israel, about three or four hours ago, there was a quite large rocket fired close to -- very close to this building where we are right now. as you mentioned, a tightly packed city, 1.7 million people and you know, people are living right on top of each other. and so kind of echos, ricochet off a building, unless you see where it landed, it is hard it get
in gaza city to see the damage first hand. how egypt will respond to the crisis is a big concern tonight and more on that in a moment. meantime, new evidence that hamas has weapons powerful enough to reach farther into israel. two of its rockets hit just south of jerusalem and others got close enough to tel aviv to set off air raid sirens. this video posted on the al qods brigade to show the rockets hamas is using. the targeting of jerusalem and tel aviv an escalation by hamas. three israelis have been killed since wednesday and there's a lot to get to and we begin with sarah in gaza city. you've seen missile fire explosions earlier. what are you seeing and hearing now? >> just a few minutes ago another targeted air strike. we hear a loud blast and that's been happening throughout the day. this afternoon it was just like hell here, to be perfectly honest, for the residents here. there were blasts after blasts after blasts and when you looked up in the sky you also saw the telltale signs of rockets being sent from here to israel. the entire sky at one point looked like it was criss-crosse
israelis have been killed since wednesday and there's a lot to get to and we begin with sarah in gaza city. you've seen missile fire explosions earlier. what are you seeing and hearing now? >> just a few minutes ago another targeted air strike. we hear a loud blast and that's been happening throughout the day. this afternoon it was just like hell here, to be perfectly honest, for the residents here. there were blasts after blasts after blasts and when you looked up in the sky you also saw the telltale signs of rockets being sent from here to israel. the entire sky at one point looked like it was criss-crossed with rockets, a very, very dangerous situation here in gaza. we also, anderson, went to the hospital and the hospital, the doctors there and nurses there completely overwhelmed. every 15 minutes people were coming in including men, women and children, anderson. >> is there any indication that hamas will stop firing? >> reporter: look, we talked to one of the hamas leaders and what they said is when israel stops hitting them with air strikes and stops bombarding us we will stop sending
like in gaza city. [ cheering and shouting ] >> people took to the streets. they celebrated what they saw as a victory for hamas and for gaza. the question is will all of this hold and will these people once again take cover in their homes and will the fear return? for u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton and mohamed moresy, the agreement calls for a discussion for the freedom of movement. commitment by israel not to target militants in gaza. to halt rocket fire into israel. nothing is a done deal. in the next hour we will hear from the spokeswoman for the israeli defense forces and we begin with a look at what has transpired over the last 24 hours. and it is remarkable that there is a cease fire when you consider how this wednesday started off. at midday no sign of atruce yet. at least two dozen people wounded. hamas praised the attack near the headquarters of the defense forces. farther south, a home was hit by a rocket. room after room left in ruins. more than 60 rockets were fired from gaza today. the others were intercepted. across the border in fagaza several large explo
. >>> good evening. breaking news tonight. you're looking live at gaza city, a city on the edge. any hope of a quick cease-fire between israel and hamas appears to have gone. another day of deadly attacks from both sides. president obama has dispatched secretary of state hillary clinton for closed door meetings. she stood side by side with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu tonight. >> in the days ahead, the united states will work with our partners here in israel and across the region toward an outcome that bolsters security for the people of israel, improves conditions for the people of gaza and moves toward a comprehensive peace for all people of the region. >> secretary clinton sits down with palestinian authority president mahmoud abbas and with egyptian president mohammed morsi tomorrow. i want to bring in cnn's wolf blitzer, who is live for us in jerusalem tonight, and anderson cooper and ben wedeman, both in gaza city. wolf, let me start with you if i may. a very tense day with claim and counterclaim coming almost on an hourly basis. there was going to be a cease-fire, then
in gaza city into israel. i want to show you a picture that our photographer dan morgan was able to take last night around 3:30 in the morning. he's pointing his camera towards what was the police headquarters. hamas police headquarters when he saw this picture. it was a big blast and then a big ball of fire. now, i want to show you what's happened since then. the result of that air strike. i'm going to move out of the way here. we are about 11 stories up looking down on the main part of gaza. you are hearing now some of the traffic. there's only been a few cars, but it's a bit loud up here. i want to let you see the result of that blast. you're seeing the smouldering rubble there from the air strike last night on the police headquarters. we also know that another huge hamas building has been hit today, and can you see that building destroyed. half of it is standing, half of it collapsed. a very scary day for civilians as well. we are not seeing almost anybody in the streets. we were at the hospital overnight, and we saw quite a few people coming in there. again, the death toll now at 39
. israeli war planes have been hammering gaza city for the past few days. ham whereas militants inside gaza have been pirg back matching israel bomb for bomb with their rockets. that has sent civilians scrambling for cover. our frederick plankin is live in southern israel, and i can see that you are standing there with something over your shoulder, a part of israel's iron dome missile defense battery. how active has that been today? >> well, viktor, it's been very active. it's actually right over there. what this system consists of, it's obviously got a battery of rockets, and i also got a very sophisticated radar system. what that radar system does is it constantly scans the horizons and constantly scans the skies. when it sees something come up like a rocket welcome back a fraction of a second it makes a decision whether or not to launch a kill. i can tell you the iron dome heats in the field behind us has been very active since we've gotten here a couple of hours ago. we have seen several missiles launch just less than an hour ago. a lot of those were intercepted. one landed only about 3
. >> reporter: gaza city's deserted streets came back to life today. weapons on both sides fell silent as the fragile cease-fire held. after eight days of living in fear, thousands of palestinians gathered in the city square to show support for hamas. you can feel the sense of relief here on the streets of gaza city today that the fighting is over. but hamas is declaring this a celebration of victory. and despite more than a week of suffering, that's exactly how people here see it. imad told us this latest fight against israel has united palestinians. >> we have a great victory here in gaza okay. we imposed our conditions on them, okay, because we fight them. >> reporter: hamas' prime minister ismail haniyeh, put it this way: he said, "i want to say to the palestinian people in gaza that the option of invading gaza after this victory is gone and will never return." israel's leaders would dispute that, but today their soldiers were pulling back from the border with gaza. at the same time, the israeli army chief of staff benny gantzed a stark warning. >> if gaza will stay quiet, if nothi
city high-rise. these are live pictures from gaza where you can see smoke coming from a building. witnesses say an israeli air strike has hit a building that houses a number of local and foreign news organizations. you can still see smoke in the air there. israel has been attack the region from the air. retaliation for months of rocket attacks coming gaza. >>> 94 palestinians including 50 civilians have been killed in gaza since the air strikes began last week. in israel, three civilians have been killed by rockets launched by the hamas. cbs reporter susan mcginnis has more on the attacks and efforts to encourage a cease-fire. >>> reporter: bombs shook gaza city awake monday morning. the israeli air force targeted another 80 sites during overnight and morning bombing. the military says it targeted weapons storage facilities and police stations. hamas says israel is killing civilians. this sixth day of air strike follows an israeli offense on sunday leading to the deadliest day of attacks yesterday. at least 29 palestinians were killed including four children when a bomb hit this
comprehensive coverage of this crisis in gaza. fred pleitgen is in ashkelon, ben wedemans in gaza city. ben wedeman, good morning, set the scene for me. >> reporter: yes, brooke, it was a noisezy night and we saw intense bombardment just behind where i'm standing. that was proceeded by increasing sort of mounting reports that a cease-fire was about to be announced or a period of calm. but it appears that there were problems within the israeli government that prime minister benjamin netanyahu and his foreign minister lieberman didn't see eye to eye with the defense minister who was leaning towards accepting this draft proposal sent by hamas via the egyptian government. so once it was clear that those efforts had sort of run into a brick wall, we saw an intensification of israeli air strikes and of course rocket fire out of gaza as well. one of the rockets, rather, one of the air strikes hit very close to the hotel where many journalists are staying right on the coast right next to the gaza city beach. now most recently within the last hour the house of a senior adviser to hamas, prime minist
continued today. [ gunfire ] about two hours ago a reuters camera in gaza city caught this explosion. cnn's ben wedeman reports a building near the city was likely hit by an israeli air strike in gaza. he was on live with hala gorani when the explosion happened. take a look. >> i think it's pretty clear that we are moving in the direction of -- [ gunfire ] i can hear shattering glass out there right now. the building just shook of course because i was looking at the camera i didn't see where the blast took place. anybody see it? okay. to the north of this building here. so despite talk of cease fire, hala, it appears that the guns are still firing. >> the gaza ministry of health says 114 palestinians have been killed and at least 900 injured since last wednesday. the israeli military announced that an israeli soldier was killed by a hamas rocket this afternoon bringing the israeli death toll to five with at least 70 people wounded. our cnn crews are monitoring the situation on both sides of the israeli/gaza border. in addition to their reporting, we expect to hear from the secretary of st
'agata is in gaza city this morning. >> reporter: it's like being on a different planet in gaza city whole world away from what this place was like 24 hours ago. people are smiling, congratulating one another. we had to fight through traffic for the first time. and for the first time people here got a good night's sleep and woke up without the worry of israeli air strikes. palestinians by the thousands rallied in gaza city today in support of hamas and to celebrate the end of the worst fighting gaza has seen for years. city streets that had been deserted for more than a week suddenly sprang to life. workmen began the long clean up after eight days of bombardment from israeli air strikes and mourners buried the last man killed by those attacks before the cease fire took hold. funerals of the 160 people killed, almost half of which were civilians, had to be put on hold for days because it was too dangerous to come out any sooner. the very moment the cease fire took effect last night, palestinians emerged from their homes and filled the streets, cheering and firing weapons i
